Six biological museums will open their collections to the public at the third annual UC Davis Biodiversity Day from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8.
The event will showcase collections of the Bohart Museum of Entomology, the Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology, the Botanical Conservatory, the Center for Plant Diversity, the Anthropology Collections and the Paleontology Collections.
It’s an opportunity to see “see carnivorous plants, touch fossils, learn about birds and hold insects,” said Tabatha Yang, outreach and education coordinator at the Bohart Museum. More than 1,000 people turned out for this event last year.
Free and open to the public, it’s a family-friendly event. Parking is free as well.
